The Adventures of Captain Marvel Trailer (extra on The Adventures of Captain Marvel DVD (Artisan Home Entertainment, 2003)). [Category: Commercial]

This trailer starts off with a bang as God (or somebody who looks like Michelangelo’s version of God) explodes and we see “SHAZAM!” in a cool font. And the rest of it is pretty lively, with hyperbolic assertions, goofy costumes, unlikely cliffhangers, and bad guys being thrown into balsa wood furniture aplenty. Serials are often better in trailer form, since they leave out the boring parts.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
